Nathan Adrian, 23, outshined by American stars such asand , made a name for himself by winning the 100-meter Olympic freestyle Wednesday. Adrian took out the Missile by a fingertip. Meaning, he reached out to the wall to edge James “The Missile” Magnussen by one-hundredth of a second, the slightest margin possible, and once more repudiate Australia its first individual swimming gold of the London Games.
Adrian said it’s not who swims the fastest time this year, but it’s who can get their hands on the wall first here tonight.
In another event, the Aussies acknowledged another bitter defeat in the final event of the evening, again to their American rivals as Allison Schmitt pursued down Alicia Coutts for gold in the 4x200 freestyle relay. The Australians got another silver while France picked up the bronze.
